about

A music and photography project by Scanner, with MCs and photographers from the New Horizon Youth Centre, the day centre for homeless young people in King’s Cross, London. This took place in 2006 and the results were released as a special CD edition. For this Bandcamp release I've included all the extra remixes that were commissioned at the time too, which have never been officially released.

This remains a free release, but 100% any monies raised will be given directly back to New Horizon Youth Centre to continue their support for young people.

"NightJam is the latest project in Artangel Interaction’s Nights of London series of artist-led collaborations with people who have a special view on a hidden side of the nocturnal city. Scanner invited young people at New Horizon Youth Centre in King’s Cross to collaborate on a creative project that expresses how the city at night looks and sounds to their ears and eyes.

Through music and voice workshops they explored the sense of freedom and fear, celebration and solitude of the concealing darkness. Meanwhile, they captured their nights on disposable cameras, taking images that are at times eerie, startling, contemplative and funny. NightJam presents two elusive visual and musical journeys through the city’s ‘quiet’ hours."
